Andy The Door Bum – The Mt. Holly Sessions
Label: After Birth Cassarole Records
Release Date: April 10, 2007
The creepy guy who may or may not be homeless that hangs out at your neighborhood venue and knows the roaches in the bathroom by name made a record. This local vagabond goes by the name Andy Fenstermaker and was bred in the hills of Appalachia, which for those unaware is home to everyone who has ever been on Jerry Springer.
How is it?:
Drew Danburry it ain’t, but there’s something charming about this door bum. His off-key caterwaul and poorly played gaggle of instruments fit his persona and when he bitterly gruffs out those door bum anthems, we all start to embrace the door bum in each of us. Ahh, to be young and dirty again.
Song you’ll be most embarrassed about getting stuck in your head: “Knuckles”
Eccentricities: Jason Webley, John Frusciante, Atom & His Package
